Where the streets have no name

Sheffield Report written by Tom Mutton

On a damp, drizzly dark eve a FANTASTIC FOUR ventured to the other side of the track to meet with SUSTRANS SIMON at Park Hill to grab tools and then meet up with Adam Simmonite of Sheffield Urban Cyclocross to help clean the cobbles ready for the charity bike race happening this weekend!

Spades and brushes were tonights tools of the trade. We took a side each and got straight to scraping the overgrown weeds and moss that had encrouched onto the cobbles over time.

It was a pretty intense workout for the arms and back which is not the usual target during a GG sesh, so nice to have the variety.

By the time we were done the path was looking loads clearer and much more race ready for the weekend.

Post run we had a stair session, follow by some stretching and a mini tour of Park Hill flats before heading to our homes.

Until next time, happy running :)

It was an edgy evening with folk cutting down the slopes. And that was just us. I got far too excited looking around Park Hill and their shop. Lovely you can walk through Park Hill now. Hope to see some of you at the race from 12pm on Saturday.

🎼 Another one Lights the Dusk 🎶

Sheffield Report written by Rachel (she/her)

3 Goodgymmers joined other volunteers to steward at local community event Sharrow Lantern Carnival.

We helped set up by moving lanterns at the start, then we engaged members of the public at the starting point, whilst collecting donations. We then walked the parade in pairs whilst being a point of contact for people needing first aid, lost children and general queries, whilst still rattling our buckets for more donations.

Highlight was a little boy at the end who had saved up all his pocket money to donate after enjoying the previous year so much 😍

Can you (shef)field the goodgym love?

Liverpool Report written by Sallyann Hardwick

We were so pleased to hear that some of Goodgym Sheffield were going to be coming to Princes parkrun, and looking forward to today. However I don't think any of us realised just how fabulous it would be.

The sun shone on a cold morning making the ideal conditions for a parkrun. As always parkrun allows everyone to find their own rythmn, volunteering, walking, running, chatting. By the time we all met up at the end of the parkrun connections were already being made. Sheffield showed us their photo taking expertise - they had already decided on the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot.

We then headed down to The Third Cafe for the post parkrun breakfast and over enormous plates of delicious food and steaming drinks we chatted. It was so exciting to meet and talk about our groups and share experiences and ideas. The energy in the room was buzzing and inspiring. It never ceases to be smile inducing to get a group of people who share an interest together. Whilst at the table we got an incoming photo of Jo our intrepid parkrun tourist who had just completed her Compass Challenge at East Park Wolverhampton.

Thank you so much Sheffield crew for sharing your city break time with us - we look forward to seeing you again soon. Friends who run together brunch together

Kickstart my heart for Lynwood Gardens

Sheffield Report written by Tom Mutton

Our Motley Crue gathered outside The Showroom Cinema last night around a defibrillator to kick start our hearts ready for our uphill journey to Lynwood gardens. It was great to welcome back George who we've not seen in a while and we hope she and husband Sam are able to make it along when they can. Fortunately the defib was not needed and we all made it safe and happy at Lynwood gardens, meeting Seiko there.

John Kirkwood who is Sustrans Ranger and looks after this patch of the Sustrans National Cycle Network (NCN) met us at the task and walked us through this very important link road of the NCN which keeps people off the busier surrounding roads and gives people using it a taste of inner city nature. We also met with Sustrans volunteer Craig Myres who brought all the relevant tools down to help us.

The path was getting overgrown and narrowing with overgrowth and fallen branches. We got straight to it and set to work:

  • Brushing
  • Chopping/lopping back
  • Litter picking
  • Scrapping
  • Soil shifting
  • Armchair moving

After a good session and with a city owl cheering us on in the background (an actual one, not Sheffield Wed fan) we popped tools down and headed off into the night with a run through town to mix it up and see all the developments that are popping up in town.

John has sent us some photos of how it looks in the daylight which is a lot better than when we got to it!

Until next time, happy running! :)

It's a fair cop-pice!

Sheffield Report written by Rachel (she/her)

It was a bright sunny February afternoon, and I joined rangers and volunteers from Heeley People's Park to help with the ongoing task of coppicing Hazel trees.

This basically means chopping and sawing them down to the base so they can grow back stronger and less twisty.

We defeated another 4 out of the 41 that need tackling and my arms got a good workout!
